This wool-silk-linen tie made of a fabric from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds’ Portofino VII bunch features an amazing mix of shades of brown, cobalt blue and cream. In combination with the mottled texture of the cloth, the result is an ideal tie for casual late summer and autumn combinations.
Pair it with a light blue shirt, navy suit and copper suede adelaides for a classic look or go bold(er) with a white linen button down, a blue herringbone linen suit and snuff suede string loafers.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen with a light blue border or dark purple based silk square. Try to keep other accessories simple, as this tie will grab enough attention.
Huddersfield Fine Worsteds is an internationally-renowned fabric manufacturer from west Yorkshire with an experience of over 700 years. Their ranges include the famous Hardy Minnis Flannel and Fresco cloths.
Our ties are entirely hand made from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the bar tacks in a small workshop in Como, Italy. This family business is around since more than half a century and has already been working for a number of well-known brands.
Each tie is constructed as a 3-fold with hand-rolled hems and a pure wool interlining.
The classic tie is between 8 cm (3.15″) and 9 cm (3.5″) wide. We recommend 8 cm width for everyone wearing a size 46, 90, 23 (36 S/R/L) or smaller. If you’re wearing a 50, 98, 25 (40 S/R/L) or bigger you should choose 9 cm width. If you’re a 48, 94 or 24 (38 S/R/L) you are spoilt for choice. We do not recommend any ties slimmer as 8 cm as it limits the ties ability to create a nicely dimpled knot.
Usually, ties measure from 145 cm (57″) to 150 cm (59″) in length. However, many men need longer or shorter ties. The length of the tie is not only defined by its wearers’ height but also by circumference of his neck. To determine your required length measure one of your existing ties from tip to tip. Tie the tie until its wide tip is the proper length and ends right at your trouser waistband. Now measure the distance from the ties skinny tip to your trouser waistband and either add or subtract it from the total length of your tie. We offer four different lengths from 140 cm (55″) to 160 cm (63″).
